@jennyc93 thinks well of Dry Creek Valley and this wine didn’t disappoint the Lab Rat A beautiful pale yellow, citrus on the nose and very clean tasting. Wonderful with chicken.

2019 Pedroncelli Sauvignon Blanc - $11 = 6.25%
Normally I autobuy a case when I see Pedroncelli, but this isn’t as much of a discount as other offerings. Maybe someone wants to talk me into it…
@Superllama7 this is a good deal given today’s environment.
@Superllama7 @Winedavid49 Pedroncelli is a good deal regardless of today’s environment or casemates’ price.
I have noticed that for a good year(s) the case discount was likely 50% + of MSRP.
I haven’t seen many that get to the half-off if you get a case anymore. A few dollars a bottle here and there add up.
I guess my (perhaps the community?) question is how much of this less-than-we-are-used-to discount will continue.
If a winery can sell a bottle for retail (see: Corison) we don’t see them on casemates. Sometimes, they could sell it for retail over a time, but business being business, they need cash flow and to reduce inventory.
It makes me wonder how much the MSRPs were always inflated and they are still keeping it what they are, despite “today’s environment” and making the discount sites seem less of a discount, or why they don’t up their SRP and we are back to the 50% with a case.
All a bunch of psychology and business decisions, but I have noticed casemates taking a bigger chunk of the price from the past.
That is a steep price increase from the same wine + Chardonnay offering last March. Unless that Chardonnay was only valued at $3.75 per bottle.

We received this bottle on Saturday afternoon and put it in the wine fridge to relax. We opened it on Sunday for a light chicken and mixed greens dinner. The color is a beautiful pale yellow and I smelled the citrus right away. It is very clean tasting and was wonderful with the chicken. We also felt it would be nice to enjoy on the patio with a cheese plate. We love the Dry Creek Valley and this wine didn’t disappoint. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a nice white.
@jennyc93 Thank you for reviewing
Does this really need reviews…sure why not…Spectator says:

This seamless and fresh mix of melon and citrus fruit is vibrant, with clean acidity. The refreshing finish hints at lemon thyme. Drink now. 5,700 cases made. — MW
Other notes/rats/reviews on the previous offer here last March:
Labrat Checking in.
Was excited when I got the email that a wine was being sent my way. Received the bottle Friday night and put in the wine fridge so it would be ready to try on Saturday. I have had Pedroncelli red wines in the past so I am familiar with the winery but had never tried one of their whites.
I am primarily a red wine drinker but my wife likes to drink Sauvignon Blanc, so I enlisted her help on this one. Upon opening we noticed strong notes of citrus on the nose. The citrus notes came through on the first sip but they didn’t really linger for more than a few seconds. The wine was very smooth and I would classify this as an easy drinker and a crowd pleaser. It wasn’t overly complex and was on the dry side, maybe that is why this white was a little easier for me to enjoy.
The second day we paired this with a light shrimp and pasta dish and it worked perfectly. The lemon notes of the wine worked with the garlic, lemon and white wine sauce of the pasta dish.
Knowing what I know about Pedroncelli’s typical price range I thought this would sell closer to $10/bottle for the case offering. My wife approved and said she would drink this again.
@blublocker Thank you for the rattage
Pederoncelli has always done right by us. In for a case.
I’ve heard that shipping costs are out the roof.
I have unsuccessfully been lobbying for MONTHS that the next Ped offer be a mixed case of Friends white and rose…it looks like I continue to be unsuccessful. That said I’m in for a case as this is good juice, just wish my request would be granted
@sosptuba that’s a great blast from the past. I’d a been all over that.
@sosptuba +1 on this one. I LOVE the Friends blends.
@sosptuba Agreed. That case was incredible and I remember buying 2. Appreciate your efforts!
It would be only a slight exaggeration to say my prayers were answered with this offer. Been waiting to get some SB. Love Pedroncelli winery, the family, and their wines in no particular order. Thanks - In for two cases.
…and it’s actually Sauvignon Blanc this time!
@chipgreen yes indeed. The “mistake” is still quite drinkable …
$13.75/bottle at the case price? While I have purchased nearly every Pedroncelli offer in the past few years, this price puts it into competition with similarly priced wines from France (not Sancerre) and Australia that I can buy right now at the local wine store. Can anyone make comparisons to foreign offerings at similar price points? Thanks.
Just arrived today. Opened a bottle to try it out. Very pleased and more importantly, Mrs. Woop - who was disdainful at seeing two cases of wine get delivered, changed her tune when she tasted this.
Can I order another case. I loved this wine
@pmacostello The 2021 vintage is available on their site, if you don’t mind spending more. And mention you’re a Casemates customer, they’ll make you a club member for pricing purposes.
